well not quite. The mass market AV receivers focus on packing more features per dollar and compromise on sound quality and circuitry. I bought the Yamaha RX-V661 recently. Didnt like it for music. It is too bright and mids are too forwards. No it is not the klipsch. I also had the Boston Acoustics CR85 bookshelf speakers and they too sounded bright and mid was too forward.
Where as my old RX-V795a sounds so much better.
Try the rotel-RX1052 2ch receiver and a DENON 7.1 receiver like 2308 on the same speakers like Klipsch RB81. You will notice a lot of difference. Infact that is what drove towards the 2ch when I heard them at the dealer. I bought the klipsch RB81 but havent finalized the 2ch receiver yet.
On the other hand try the 2ch receiver or amp from the same manufacturer and same class (CLASS AB) then you will not notice any difference in sound quality. Like I said before RX-1052, RA-1062, RB-1050, RB-1079 etc all sound the same to me. More power in one amp of the same manufacturer does not equate to better sound in my opinion, though some folks here claim that
RB-1070 sounds better than RB-1050 (i.e bass is better on 1070). But I did not notice that. 1070 sure can play louder than 1050 but that does not mean it sounds better.
Anyway I have made the same arguments in another thread. So I see no point in wasting time here as I really dont see a solution to my problem. In fact folks in that thread ultimately concluded that my problem is unique and may not have a solution, except of course a AV receiver which I already have.
